Mid-morning coffee break.



I took it as a sign after seeing this recipe pop up on at least three different occasions the past couple of days. My sister (Hi Steph!) even emailed me the link and a note to say she was thinking of me when she came across this latte. So this morning was the day I acted on it and I am now sipping the rewards of doing so. It's a homemade pumkin spice latte and I'm enjoying every sip as well as doing myself a favor and giving my body the 100% recommended daily allowance of vitamin A. Good stuff, if you ask me.
Here's the link to the recipe. I modified it only slightly and added a touch more cinnamon and nutmeg. I also got really gourmet and pulled out a frothing device I got years ago when I interned on the tv show "Good Company". I may not have gotten a job as a result of that internship, but I did gain good experience and still can make the best frothy milk on the block.
I suppose I could have best used this morning coffee break making beds around my house and starting some laundry, but I will admit, it feels kind of nice to just kick back and enjoy something a little extra indulgent once in awhile. After 1000 blogposts, I feel I've earned a little "me time". =)
{As for winner of the previous post... Becky! Make sure we touch base at school in the next few days. You're the lucky winner this time! I've got a little something for you. I hope you'll enjoy it.}
Now, my latte is almost gone and it's time to get back to reality. Which seems a bit nicer after a big dose of homemade vitamin A!

I was just taking my last sip of pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks when I pulled this up! Yes, my wallet could use the break, seeing how we have a family of five and even the two year old likes "pumpin lattes"! Thanks for sharing.

mmmmm....that may need to be made for my afternoon coffee break! so yummy and easy. Have you ever tried Starbucks Vanilla Rooibus Tea Latte? I know it has nothing to do with pumpkins or fall....but it is my latest non-caffeinated addictions! not too sweet either.
